Judah Eight Month Update

Judah 8 months

Weight: 16lbs 12oz

Length: who knows!

Eating: What a month for Judah in his exploration of food, he has been brilliant at baby led weaning and is now on three meals a day and quite proficient at drinking water from a sippy cup with his meals. I wouldn’t have space to list all the things that Judah has tried this month, but he is pretty much eating all the meals that we do – Slimming World meals are great for baby led weaning as you cook everything from scratch and can monitor salt content. Judah like his brother loves a good pasta dish, homemade meatballs are great for chubby little hands although he is mighty fond of a broccoli cheese and red onion muffin too.

Sleeping: 7.30pm – 6.30am

Nappies: Size 3 Pampers.

Clothes: 6-9 months.

Things Judah likes to do: There is so much to update as Judah seems to have grown up so quickly this month, to start with he has his first two teeth through, I felt like he had been teething since he was three months so was very happy to have 2 down, more to go!
Judah can now sit up completely unaided for long stretches which he loves as it has allowed him to play more games with his brother rather than laying on his back or his stomach.
Judah is now quite proficient at the backwards army crawl and although this is leading to many a frustrating moment for him, it amuses Mummy and Daddy to no end.
Judah will often now lift his hands up when you are nearby to be picked up, it is so sweet and I am loving that he is now able to communicate this way, on the communication front he is very vocal over his meal times and woe to anyone who puts him in his Tripp Trapp with no food to consume the second his bottom hits the chair.
This month we purchased a play centre for Judah, he has outgrown any mat type thing now and we wanted something that would be more interactive for him. It is marketed up to three years old and so Nathanael is a tad too old to crawl through things however he has been loving showing Judah what it does and Judah has loved Nathanael playing with him.
Judah is very social, he loves to be in on the action and can’t bear the thought of missing out on anything and you can sense his frustration that he can’t do everything he wants to at the moment, that said Judah is very content and happy in himself and generally is only unhappy if a tooth is about to break through.
Can’t wait to see what Judah has planned for his ninth month and as ever just wish I can stop time to make it all last a little longer.
